From the mail bag!

Hello Limor,

I just discovered your site and company and I wanted to send a brief email to say how much I appreciate what you are doing. I grew up in the 1970’s – in the days of Heathkit and Radio Shack (the REAL radio shacks!) when electronics was a common hobby, and kits brought me into electronics at an early age. (see my favorite toy here)

Although electronic design is no longer my primary occupation I still develop projects in my spare time and I had been looking for a company to make kit versions of some particularly cool projects, such as my current modular Nixie system, where hobbyists can use Nixies for any display application with a BCD or serial controller and modular power supply.

Anyway, thanks for being out there and keeping electronics open and available to the new generation of engineers. You are awesome!
